Christian perspective on teenage dating
God loves us, and He does not want us to fail in life.
But that sometimes means that He will not give us what we want when we want it because He knows the positive or negative results of our truest desires.
Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.
Philippians 2:3-5 When we talk to kids about dating, we can help them set the biblical standard of considering another person’s interest above themselves, and that love means wanting the very best for that person. He is kind, good-looking, smart, and a great soccer player. David has Jesus Christ living inside him by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Sure, he knew this gap was normal for teenagers and their parents. “Okay,” he replied, “I’ll take that for an answer .
